I attended a National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) information session this week, to better prepare my families and myself for the launch. The training was provided by Every Australian Counts, a key campaigner for the NDIS. If you'd like to receive a summary of my notes taken from the session, please read on...
What is the NDIS?
Costs and reach
Financial/ Employment benefits of NDIS
People with high support needs who are 'known' to services will be given priority (with initial transfer)
Supports that will be available (not exhaustive)
I still have many questions but hope this has answered some of yours.
Exciting times ahead for people with disabilities - and their families!
